This is an absolutely elegant jade medallion pendant carved with the image of a Pi Xiu carrying a child, beautifully strung on strong green cord embellished with a jade Mystic Knot and a pair of double jade coins which are interlocked to resemble a pair of Wu Lous. With so many auspicious symbols, it is no wonder that this pendant represents extreme good wealth luck, good descendant luck, and good protection. The Pi Xiu is depicted carrying its child on its back. This denotes care and protection for children which can also be seen as a fertility symbol capable of fulfilling one’s desire to conceive and have children. The Pi Xiu or Pi Yao, a mystical creature that is a particularly powerful and auspicious symbol of good fortune, is adored by many because of its very protective, obedient, and loyal nature. It is also said to have a voracious appetite for precious stones and jewels that is infinite. The interesting part is that the Pi Xiu does not have an anus, which means things only go in but never come out. Due to this reason, it has therefore become a favorite must-have for businessmen and merchants wishing loads of money rolling in without spilling out a dime. It is no wonder that Pi Xiu can often be seen in banks, casinos, foreign exchange markets, and finance companies in Oriental countries. It is believed that the Pi Xiu will always try its best to fulfill its owner’s wish and protect him from harm or injuries. Many stories have been told where victims of car accidents or robbery assaults surprisingly escaped the ordeal unharmed and found out later that their Pi Xiu amulets they were wearing or keeping had mysteriously broken into two or damaged. When this happens, it is said that their Pi Xiu had taken the brunt of the mishap on their behalf and sacrificed themselves to protect their owner. Last but not least, the Pi Xiu or Pi Yao is known to be the pet of the Grand Duke Jupiter or Tai Sui. Whilst those whose Chinese horoscope sign is in conflict with Tai Sui MUST wear or carry a Pi Xiu amulet throughout the year of affliction for protection, it is recommended that everyone should carry one, whether or not your horoscope sign is in conflict with Tai Sui in a particular year because the Tai Sui changes direction every year and you may unknowingly sleep or sit facing him, which will also incur his wrath. Just think of it as a 24/7 bodyguard!
